our work : special education department

We provide remedial help for those with learning difficulties.

Psychological problems or anxieties are often expressed in symptoms such as an inability to perform adequately at school or behavioural problems at home. If children’s problems are ignored, their symptoms may persist and they risk educational failure, unemployment and the likelihood of contributing to the cycle of violence in which they began as victims.

The children in Special Education receive psychological testing which enables staff to draw up individual programs of intensive treatment for each child and constantly assess their progress.

The success of this department has been overwhelming – a large majority of patients are re-integrated into the educational system and improve their school performance.

Remedial teaching courses are often complimented with Play Therapy, Speech Therapy, Social Work and Cultural activities.
